Eithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin, conhecida como Enya, é uma cantora, instrumentista e compositora irlandesa. Enya é uma transliteração aproximada de como Eithne é pronunciado na língua irlandesa, a transliteração completa em inglês seria Enya Patricia Brennan.

Começou sua carreira musical em 1980, e se juntou rapidamente à banda Clannad, de sua família, antes de sair para prosseguir com sua carreira solo. Através de seu álbum Watermark, que foi lançado em 1988, obteve reconhecimento internacional, com a ajuda de seu carro-chefe "Orinoco Flow", que atingiu o topo da parada britânica e a posição 24 nos Estados Unidos. Enya ficou conhecida por seu som único, que foi caracterizado por camadas de voz, melodias folk, cenários sintetizados e reverberações etéreas. Logo após, o sucesso de Enya continuou durante a década de 90, com o lançamento dos multi-platinados álbuns Shepherd Moons e The Memory of Trees. Depois da promoção mundial do último, Enya lançou sua primeira coletânea de sucessos, Paint the Sky with Stars, que obteve vendas mundiais de 12 milhões de cópias.

Em 2000, Enya lançou seu quinto álbum de estúdio, A Day Without Rain, que obteve vendas recordes e foi o álbum mais vendido por uma artista feminina em 2001, além de ser o álbum new age mais vendidos de todos os tempos. Esse se tornou o trabalho de Enya que mais vendeu durante sua carreira. As vendas do álbum e de seu carro-chefe "Only Time" aumentaram depois do uso da mídia internacional devido aos ataques de 11 de setembro de 2001. Em 2005, lançou o bem recebido disco Amarantine, cantando algumas músicas na língua Loxian, desenvolvida pelo casal Ryan. Em 2008, lançou o disco And Winter Came..., cujos temas principais são o Natal e o inverno e um ano depois sua segunda coletânea de sucessos The Very Best of Enya, que consiste nas músicas preferidas da carreira de Enya, escolhidas por ela e o casal Ryan. Depois de uma pausa, Enya voltou ao estúdio em 2012 para gravar seu oitavo álbum de estúdio Dark Sky Island, lançado em 2015, que recebeu criticas positivas e vendas mundiais de mais de um milhão de cópias.

Enya é a artista solo irlandesa que mais vende e, do país, é oficialmente a segunda maior exportadora musical, depois da banda U2. Ao todo, Enya vendeu mais de 80 milhões de discos, sendo mais de 26 milhões somente nos Estados Unidos, fazendo dela uma recordista de vendas mundialmente e também nos Estados Unidos. Seu trabalho lhe rendeu, entre outras coisas, uma indicação ao Oscar. Ela é conhecida por ter cantado em 10 línguas diferentes durante sua carreira.

Enya é uma das musicistas mais talentosas e originais da atualidade, preferindo o sucesso musical à mera fama. Disse em uma entrevista: "Eu tenho uma vida muito privada. É muito importante para a música, eu penso que a razão porque consigo ter uma vida privada, é porque a música é maior do que eu. Alguns artistas são maiores que a música". Enya nunca entrou em turnê, divulgando seus trabalhos através de performances em programas de televisão e premiações, entrevistas e canções presentes em trilhas sonoras.

Enya ganhou muitos prêmios durante sua carreira, incluíndo sete World Music Awards, quatro Grammy Awards por Melhor álbum New Age, um Ivor Novello Award, e foi indicada ao Academy Award e Golden Globe Award por "May It Be", uma canção incluída na trilha sonora de O Senhor dos Anéis: A Sociedade do Anel .

Uma das artistas mais ricas do Reino Unido, Enya possui uma fortuna de R$ 450 milhões.

Citações Enya

„I get very inspired by traveling, by being home in Donegal ... all those wonderful moments I'll take with me to the studio. And they, ah, then become at some stage, a melody. That emotion that I loved at some stage will evolve as a melody.“

„There is no formula to it because writing every song, for me, is a little journey.“

—  Enya
Context: There is no formula to it because writing every song, for me, is a little journey. The first note has to lift you and make you go, 'What's this?' You play C, but why is it that one day it leads to G and it didn't yesterday? I don't know. It's everything. It's the walk you take in the morning, it's the night before, the meeting with people, landscapes, the chats, all of that evolves in some way into melody, but I'm not sure how it's going to happen. I'm dealing with the unknown all the time and that is exciting.

„People have this image of me as an ethereal Lady of Shalott, floating across the battlements, but it's a very small castle as castles go — with no big ballrooms...“

—  Enya
Context: I live in Victorian Gothic castle in Killiney that I was so bold as to rename Manderley, because Daphne du Maurier 's Rebecca is one of my favourite books.... People have this image of me as an ethereal Lady of Shalott, floating across the battlements, but it's a very small castle as castles go — with no big ballrooms... I don't write my music in my home, only in the studio; I want as normal life as possible at home, with dinner parties and entertaining.

„I like to stay up-to-date with what's happening musically ... I wish people wouldn't think that such things were going to shock me. 'Wow! Does Enya really watch TV?'“

„I could have been more famous if I did all the glitzy things, but celebrity always seemed so unnecessary ... Fame and success are very different things, anyway.“

—  Enya
Context: I could have been more famous if I did all the glitzy things, but celebrity always seemed so unnecessary... Fame and success are very different things, anyway. The music sold itself before anybody knew who I was, so I felt I had a choice. I told the record company I didn't feel the need to be out there at red-carpet events. I wanted a career. But I wanted to keep myself intact as a person.

„Enya never writes a bad melody. That's first and foremost her secret.“

—  Enya
Context: Enya never writes a bad melody. That's first and foremost her secret. As she goes along, she'll start changing the dynamics, pushing here and there so that not everything is perfectly in unison. It adds a texture you can acquire only from having different voices. The variations lead to interesting quirks. It's an integral part of the Enya sound. Nicky Ryan

„There was no name on the music she was writing. All I knew was that hard work succeeded.“

—  Enya
Context: Enya knew nothing about recording, about production or arrangements. Originally, we were stock-piling music and just letting her get on with it. There was no name on the music she was writing. All I knew was that hard work succeeded. Nicky Ryan

„Amarantine is an ancient word, which means eternity. The poets describe an undying flower with that word, and I fell in love with that idea ...“

—  Enya
Context: Amarantine is an ancient word, which means eternity. The poets describe an undying flower with that word, and I fell in love with that idea... For me that word suited rhythmically to the refrain of the piece. A-ma-ran-ti-ne. In our website the fans tried to guess something super-romantic to be the album's name, but this word was obviously never guessed by anyone.

„I think they find it — they find me quite confusing, because — they know the music, but they don't know anything about me ... because I keep a very private lifestyle so they end up ... making up stories as such. But I don't really concern myself too much about them.“

„Music is like a mirror in front of you. You're exposing everything, but surely that's better than suppressing. ... You have to dig deep and that can be hard for anybody, no matter what profession. I feel that I need to actually push myself to the limit to feel happy with the end result.“

—  Enya
Context: The word workaholic is so severe, but I do focus a lot on my work... I think a lot about what I'm doing in all aspects of my life, what am I trying to achieve here, am I happy with this? Music is like a mirror in front of you. You're exposing everything, but surely that's better than suppressing.... You have to dig deep and that can be hard for anybody, no matter what profession. I feel that I need to actually push myself to the limit to feel happy with the end result.

„There is no set sort of rules, or no set sort of formula to the way we work in the studio ... so it's difficult to know ... what we'll move on to next.“

—  Enya
Context: There is no set sort of rules, or no set sort of formula to the way we work in the studio... so it's difficult to know... what we'll move on to next. We don't like to say, "Never, no we'd never do this"... But, we... like the setup as far as there's only three people in the studio... because the work is very personal, very intimate, very emotional... and that is very important to the album.

„There might be one little thing that makes all the difference, one note or one word. The fine-tuning is all important, and you've got to stay there until you get it right ... That's why it can take years.“
